Beach Body Help Needed!




We want to tell you about one of our friends. She has been doing that 21 day fix and has really been dedicated to it. We are so proud of her.

 In addition to the color coded containers, she's been doing the workout dvds.  She use to play the videos on her laptop but that stopped working so she went to the store and bought herself a little dvd player.  Unfortunately the dvd player she bought did not work so she returned it to the store. She did not realize that she had left her 21 day fix dvd inside of it until the next day. When she called the store to tell them she left her disc inside the machine, it was too late. They said they had already sent the dvd player back to the company! Womp Womp! Now she lost her disc!

She called Beach Body and asked if she could get a replacement disc but they wouldn't give her just the one disc without her purchasing the entire package over again!  This is ridiculous! 

The reason we are sharing this story is because I have read about people having success with this program.  You wouldn't think that if someone is dedicated enough to do something like this that other people should support them. In this instance I think that Beach Body should support our friend. I know that it wasn't Beach Body's fault that my friend lost her disc but you would think they would try to help her out rather than just say "Sorry you need to purchase the whole package over again".  Can't they sell piece of the program a la cart to existing customers?

So we are putting this out there to see if any Beach Body coaches can help our friend out. Do any of you know how she can get  disc 1?  Anyone have extras or discs they no longer use?

  1. I have to be honest. I don't think Beachbody should replace it. Yes, they are out there to help people reach their goals, but they are still a business. Can you imagine if you had a business and this happened? You replace one, then you need to do it for everyone. It would be one thing if the product was defective, but losing the DVD on your own isn't their fault technically. I'm sorry that she lost it. I hope she can find someone who is looking to sell theirs!

    1. You are right that they wouldn't have to "give" her the dvd. She was willing to purchase disc one but they would not sell her just one disc by its self.

  2. I've had a few friends have great success with BeachBody. I'm not a fan of the whole pyramid thing, but hey, if it helps you to stay motivated, then it's a good thing. But couldn't they sell her a replacement DVD?

    1. Yes, that's what she was hoping, but beach body won't sell her just one disc by its self. They want her to purchase the entire package again.

  3. Maybe go on Craig's list or ebay and look for a used one. I don't think they are obligated to pay for it.

    1. That's what I was going to suggest too! Although you guys have a lot of readers so this post will help too. I don't know if it is available online on youtube or to download as well? Just trying to think of ideas for your friend! Oh, one more idea... Maybe the library has it? I know you can only check them out for a week or two but maybe it would help a little.

  4. Try amazon. They have some of that stuff ala cart. It's a bit more expensive, but there's a lot out there.

  5. It's really an expensive program!! It seems like there should be a better answer, then buy it all again. You would think with so many participating in the program someone is bound to come up with one they could part with.
    I tried Shakeolgy and loved it :) a but boy is it pricey...

  7. It seems silly that they aren't able to sell her disc 1. She can't be the first person to need a replacement!

  8. What a bummer! I hope she's able to find a way to replace the disc without having to buy the entire set again.

  9. Hey - you know I am now a Beachbody coach, right? I'm a part of a huge team so I'm going to put out word about this & see if anyone has an extra or wants to sell it for uber-cheap. I'll let you know if I hear anything.
